What is Dopesick about?

Dopesick, based on a novel of the same name, examines the rise of the opioid crisis in America and how the unsupervised greed of pharmaceutical companies led to rampant addiction and death across the country. The series follows the trail of the tiny pill, all the way from the pristine boardrooms of its marketing conception, right through to a mining town in Virginia, where a (well-meaning) doctor hands it over to a patient in pain; a simple, singular, exchange symbolising the catalyst for an entire nation’s collapse. As the coppers of the companies grew, people began to use the drug to numb the pain of everything from medical needs, to joblessness, to depression to boredom – starting a new era of drug addiction in America. Dopesick is a focused look at how a nation bought the lies they were sold and have been stuck ever since.
